Lets the public decide who is best not just geeks on GSMArena. Folk find IOS simple so they pay for it,,they don't know what RAM or CPU/GPU is inside they don't even care.They don't even know anything about computers but they can operate it easily but give em Android and it stumps them.Seen few real life cases of this..
It will beat many quad core smartphones the same way 5s did! It's different technology!
Why pay $600+ for a phone that can't even last the whole day streaming on 3G/4G ??? Better options: LG G2

i was ecpecting more from apple, really apple should care about thier customers and our expectation, iwas waiting till the date of release this one but i want go apple anymore.. Viva samsung
vos, 05 Sep 2014Completely agree, contemporary Androids with all their high speed quad core CPUs are not anywh... moreIts actually about the architecture, Apples 2 cores take up almost the same die space as a quadcore and is in addition specially made to run iOS.
Apple have a monopoly when you are stuck in there sphere of products as you can only use iTunes and the Apple app store. They tend to fuel their own advancement through locking down of iOS and their strictness, but in practice I find that the top end Android phones are maybe only 5-10% behind in performance on certain benchmarks so, considering Apple only focus on maybe 4 different devices, they can spend a bit more time optimising there software.
This doesn't, at least in my mind, equate to real value with the 20%-30% difference in price compared to high end android phones.
I'd take a slightly underperforming android for a lot less money myself. We're talking mere nanoseconds of difference, not even noticeable to human perception, when opening apps or waiting for games to load.

It's all about the software and optimization indeed.
People need to take a reality check on this comments page. yes Apple lead the way with there processors but seriously, when they rip off consumers who are so readily willing to part with serious amounts of cash for their slightly better specced phones then you can see how they can afford too invest more. There are many reasons why Apple can stay ahead of the Android manufacturers:
1. Apple gets all the profit from the iPhone, including advertising and iTunes. Android manufacturers get zero from that, it all goes to google.
2. Apple is a direct investor in Arm, the British company that designs the processor tech for Mobile phone CPU's, therefore it must have faster access and certain unique privileges other licensees haven't got.
Personally, I'd take a free and unrestricted Android phone with a 5% slower performing processor to one of Apples money magnetisers any day. I think you'd have to be a fool to prop up Apple.
price tag matters....how much is your phone and time taken to update software and new phone timelines.
Anyone who is trying to compare a Samsung or android to an I phone 6 is obviously a retard for the simple fact the phone hasn't even been released yet, and also do some actual research and you will learn about optimization with iPhones, no other company can compare.
Android forever, 05 Sep 2014Apple customers don't know the meaning of performance. It's all about the samsung. 2.5ghz sna... moreSamsung does not make snapdragon processors.
And the iphone 5S, which is 1 year old, is still one of the fastest phones ever released, beating pretty much every single flagship of this generation like the G3, M8 one and galaxy S5.
Please look up Anandtech review of the 5S to see how the A7 is a performance monster.
